Bethany at Five!

It is hard to believe but the "baby" of our family is now five years old!
Here are some things about Bethany. . .
  1. She is the most resilient kid in our family.  So far this year she's had to deal with switching churches, moving to Wilson, Daddy' moving out, getting a dog, Grampy getting cancer, Mommy going back to work full time and day care.  All of that and she is only a little bit clingy in the mornings or when I leave her.
  2. Her vocabulary is out of this world.  Seriously, she knows more words than any other 5 year old I have ever met, even Elijah!
  3. She absolutely adores her preschool teacher, Ms. Johnstone.  She is quite possibly Bethany's most favorite person.
  4. She acts all clingy and whiny just around mommy to see if she can get her way. 
  5. She is a sneak and will sneak in for snuggles with someone (Lydia or mommy) at some point most nights.
  6. She doesn't have a set "lovey" that she needs to have to be content.  Any soft and fuzzy item will do.
  7. She despises the cat.
  8. She loves the dog but hates the dogs paws being on her.
  9. She is a great sleeper and normally sleeps for 11 hours every night.
  10. In her 4 year old year she learned to ride a two wheeler. 
  11. Frozen is her favorite movie and she often wants to wear her hair like Elsa (coronation hair and have it up, or a braid and have it down)
  12. She will eat just about anything including seaweed, parsnips, beets and just about any meat.  She doesn't like raw carrots or chocolate chips.
  13. She can write her letters and name and loves to do "homework" with her brother and sister.  She is reading a handful of sight words and loving her decodable books from school.
  14. She can carry a tune and sing better than Lydia and Elijah put together.
  15. She loves to dance but doesn't like dance classes.
